So kudos to all you dads, grandpas, stepdads, and every kind of dad in between. Job well done.
Moving on to our more standard material: fantasy football awesomeness. Let's take a look at some end of the week linkage below:
- If you're all about the mock results (or heck, real draft results), here are a few more to keep you entertained:
- WalterFootball.com runs through a recent mock with some forum readers and talks about some of the best and worst picks by round.
- The Fantasy Sports Trade Association met earlier this week and one of the highlights of the conference is the annual FSTA experts draft. Take a look at USA Today's review of the draft (including a link out to the full draft results) in Running backs at a premium atop FSTA experts draft.
- Looking for some sleeper thoughts?
- Fantasy Knuckleheads bring you Five Fantasy Running Backs Who Could Breakout in 2012.
- Or FantasySharks.com's IDP Sleepers: Minicamp Edition. Though I must admit any IDP article these days has me missing the wisecracking smarts of Matt Schauf who has taken his talents behind a paywall...as many of the best writers eventually do, eh?
- Bleacher Report's 10 Super-Sleepers to Covet During the August Drafts (round 12 and beyond)
- Speaking of great writers, remember Razzball.com's call for submissions for The Next Great Fantasy Football Writer? It's back again this year so if you've got the fantasy writing skills and yearn for a little recognition, give it a whirl.
- The Hazean reviews the MJD situation from a fantasy perspective, Maurice Jones-Drew's Holdout and Fantasy Owners - good reading for those of us who own MJD in a dynasty league and need to think about potential insurance.
- Let's get down to a little bit of strategy here - Rotoworld has a two-part piece on using Value Based Drafting - Part I and Part II.
- I live in a Peyton-loving, Broncos-loving household so trust me, I post the following DavidGonos.com article with sorrow - Peyton Manning is NOT a top 10 quarterback - though I do really like the way he's pulled in commentary and rankings from across the fantasy landscape into his article. Nicely researched.
- Finally, CBSSports.com has their 2012 team-by-team outlooks up which include a depth chart, 2011 fantasy leaders, and an injury report for all 32 teams. Three nice bits of info to help round out your offseason education.
